    :eek: ARGH! My first ever job, I'm really nervous

    I start at 12, finish at 3, then I'm back at 6, working 'til 10...
    Place bets on me breaking something, I'm not good at washing up (I'm working in the kitchen of a pub/restaurant)

    EEK! :eek:

    Probably, but with the amount of accidents I've had in my life I'm sure I'll break something...

    Don't set yourself up to fail, have some faith in yourself. Good luck!

    Well you can't be worse then my sister, and she hasn't been fired yet, so good luck to you, and if you feel anything slipping out of your hands aim it at the rudest people.

    Erm, how? It's not "find me a job" or "I need some advice". It's not a career, it's a summer job. It's not permanent. So I don't see how it fits better into Careers, it's a general chat about how I'm really nervous about my new job.

    And since there were plenty of other threads about jobs, I don't see how this one is any worse...

    And to all those who said "you'll be fine":

    I got there, nearly broke a cup, nearly smashed a plate, burnt my hand, nearly knocked a freshly served ice cream off the food counter... That's about it, other than that it was just your usual dish-washing-rushed-off-your-feet sort of thing... My feet hurt soooooo much

    EDIT: Spelling mistake

    don't worry about it.... you just have to do your job properly - at least you're not dealing face to face with customers who can be very volatile!
